Actually it just seems to be causing complications at the moment. :-)

Trouble is, I don't have any say in the matter. Four times out of five,
I get connected to one address (196...), but sometimes 192.... comes up
instead, to keep things interesting.

I've even tried holding out for just one of the two, using 196.../24, but
they don't seem interested in negotiating.

It's the same dial-in number, I suppose it just depends which machine gets
to the phone first.
